In this chapter the authors strive to answer existing research desiderata by exploring the role of Pussy Riot as a civil society actor in the emancipation of women in a national as well as international setting. In order to address this issue, the authors explore the political, societal and religious as well as the gender-political and economic context in which Pussy Riot is located and respectively acting, the reasons behind the formation of Pussy Riot and its recent history and the specific ways in which the group pronounces its political and religious, feminist and economy critical protest.

Keywords:   Pussy Riot, civil society actor, women, emancipation, feminist
